Pickled Brussels sprouts

mabeldingeldine_gwOctober 29, 2011

I recently tasted some Dilly Brussels Sprouts, which were wonderful. I'd like to recreate them. The jar I tasted used the same ingredients as my Dilly Beans recipe with the exception of dill weed for dill heads.

Does anyone have a suggestion for the amount of dried dill weed I should use per jar in place of a dill head?

Very interesting! I hope someone responses! What is the recipe that you have? I would like to try it too!

My 2cents worth on dill weed compared to seeds, I usually have to add about 3 times the amount of weed compared to seed. I would just use the seed, I'm guessing that's what you mean by heads?

I use 2 T. dill weed per pint jar in my pickles.

I saw some pickled brussel sprouts at our gourmet grocery store recently. About $8.00 a pint! The dilly beams were expensive, too. I'm not growing any brussel sprouts but next time I see good one's on sale I'm going to try pickling them.
I'd also like to try fermenting them like sauerkraut. Wonder if you could ferment them without having to chop them up?
